This is the classic slickrock trail, with amazingly grippy sandstone. there are some extremely steep sections where, while your tires may grip, your legs might not have the power to make it up the hill. Fantastic views. Make sure you take plenty of water and...More

Slick Rock is a legend in the biking community. The rides are incredible an the various views are breath-taking. It is surely not for the faint of heart or the beginner rider. Our group of 9 male riders, ages 27-49, were experienced and fit individuals....More

As regulars on single-track mountain bike trails in the east coast woods, riding on these trails was amazing. The trail comprised angled open loose rock, solid "slickrock trails", and various other terrain, all with wonderful views.

Slickrock bike trail was originally built for motorbikes. Now it is an immense expanse of slick rock crisscrossed by marked routes now mostly used by mountain bikes but also good for hiking. Shorter training loop or full loop. Can be challenging but very worthwhile

You can do it but you may want to save your energy for the trail. It is about 3 miles from downtown with some pretty good ascents.
